RHT Namilco Thunderbolt Flour teams host annual DTV-8 Mother’s Day Programme

…honour four outstanding parents, and distribute dozens of hampers

The management and members of the Namilco Thunderbolt Flour cricket teams of the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club last Saturday hosted their annual Mother’s Day programme in conjunction with Dave’s Television Station, Ch 8.

The four mothers who have been honoured pose with DTV-8 and RHTY&SC officials

Under the direction of Club Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster, the teams hosted the 13th annual RHTY&SC/DTV 8 Mother of the Year programme and the third edition of the RHTY&SC/ Jessica Sandian Mother’s Day Project. The teams honoured four outstanding mothers under the programme with DTV-8. Those honoured were Alicia Wiggins, Tulsidai Bisram, Shayvon Singh and Angela Fraser. Singh and Fraser were selected based on an essay competition that was organised with the television station, while Bisram and Wiggins were selected by the cricket teams.
Bisram is the mother of RHTY&SC member Tameshwar Bisram, and she plays a major role in his cricket development. On a regular basis, Mrs Bisram takes her eleven-year-old son to practice in the afternoon via bicycle, and returns for him over the course of five miles every day.
Ms Wiggins is the parent of another club member, Tyrell Hutson, and she plays a major role in Tyrell assisting Club Secretary Hilbert Foster in fulfilling his duties, and he plays for the club’s under-17 team.
Foster has urged the parents to continue looking after the welfare of their children, with special emphasis being placed on education, religion, personal character, and discipline. He committed the RHTY&SC and its different cricket teams to working beyond the call of duty to make a positive difference across the ancient county.
He stated that the RHTY&SC is the only cricket club in Guyana, and perhaps the Caribbean, where members are mandated to make a positive difference in the lives of others under a wide range of community projects.
He expressed gratitude to the management of the popular television station for being a longtime supporter of Guyana’s leading youth and sports organisation, the RHTY&SC.
The teams also distributed hundreds of food hampers to single and elderly mothers under the Jessica Sandian Mother’s Day Programme.
Members of the team used two vehicles to drop off the hampers to mothers they had selected. Food hampers were also handed over to the Anglican Church headed by Pastor Sydney Jackman at No 64 Village, and to every mother at the St Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church in Port Mourant.
The team also handed over special gifts to several youths who had their first communion at the church. RHTY&SC Assistant Secretary/CEO Jonathan Rampersaud, a member of both the RHT Namilco Thunderbolt under-21 and first division teams, has said the cricketers were delighted to honour the mothers, and wished them well in the future.
Special thanks have been extended to Andy Moonsammy, Namilco, DeSinco Trading Ltd, Bakewell, Feroze Islam, Rommel Ayasammy and others.
The RHTY&SC cricket teams are officially sponsored by the National Milling Company of Guyana, whose headquarters are at Agricola, East Bank Demerara.
